Try a Bite of China


A Bite of China (舌尖上的中国) is a series of food documentary produced by CCTV, a predominant state broadcaster in mainland China. It went wild in China because of its beautiful picture and engaging narration.

“It tells the histories and stories behind Chinese cuisine: the meaning and the symbol each represents; the connection between the nature and the people; the creation of unique foods and traditional recipes; the food culture that every Chinese is proud of. Get to know Chinese life philosophy and the respect they have for the nature and food. This is the video you can’t miss.”

There are videos on Youtube with the original Chinese sound track and English subtitles, and videos on CCTV website with English sound track. You can also look at some interesting comments from Chinese people on Global Voices. Enjoy!
